Fair enough...for me, though, they have to do some of the gospel tunes to qualify.

But I hear you...

Did you notice that oh um only chimed in response to my lame reference in the LiA lovefest, only to be swamped by the Forum actually working?

And not sure I follow the skobud thing...it seems he has a problem...isn't it just a case of reposting?

Sorry, been out of touch for 48 hrs.

Do you know what yesterday represents, as in "75 yrs ago today!"???

Oh, it's an obscure reference...due to my son's interest in Johnny Depp we have been reading up on the 30s and Dillinger...he was gunned down 75 yrs ago yesterday, I believe...amazing life story.

Ah-so. I've heard the 'Lady In Red' was really wearing orange, but the harsh lights of the Biograph theatre made it look red to the reporters on the scene.. could be apocryphal.

I have a sort of knee-jerk reaction against Gospel, so maybe that's why i prefer that setlist...? Although I love "Sing Me Back Home" which is damn Gospel-y... :D

I can't find Skobud's post. As for oh, um... this time he seemed to just want to talk about the Dead for a change, rather than scoring imaginary points off of people, which everyone should welcome. Everyone on this Forum has at least one thing in common: GD. Right?

Right you are...she wore orange, but red was a bit more literary. Anna Sage..gu.Rumanian, cooperated to avoid deportation, but it didn't work out for her. Like our friend Ron, she died of liver failure once she was back in her homeland, after rec'ing $5k for the deed.

Whatever your take on all the Public Enemies and the time period (33-34), it is amazing to realize that for all his fame, Johnnie was active for basically 11 months, from June 33 thru to his death, July, 34....and, at most, gunned down ONE person...Nelson, Barrow, Floyd, etc., all had many more to their "credit"...

I always though of Dillinger in a different class than those others, and wasn't his era of activity a little earlier too? I think there was an element of copycatting going on: a lot of people thought Dillinger was cool and wanted to emulate him. This reminds me of the late poet Charles Bukowski. Whenever he was asked to list his influences or heroes, he'd either say he didn't have any, or else he'd say Dillinger...

He was in prison from 24 to May, 33, and that term was for his first assault. From June 33 thru to July 34 when he was killed, he accomplished everything we know him for, even though during that time he was incarcerated twice, for one month and two months! Escaped the second time with a wooden gun he whittled...read up and you'll be amazed and entertained as much as we were I am sure! A handful of books on him at the local library incl one they based the recent flick on...good stuff.

Oh, and he was really big on the DEAD.

Ah-ha... thanks WT. Hey, I found the posts in question and responded on that thread. LIA and his work are worth defending, nu? There's some bored, sensitive and paranoid individuals out there today... :\

Yep! Just like Johnnie Dillinger! But, I suppose they WERE out to get him!
